Hybrid Vehicle Technologies
Earn a digital badge after successful completion of the module.
A certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of 4 CCET modules.
This online course presents an overview and introduction about the current status of hybrid vehicles and basic technologies. Hybrid powertrains provide new opportunities to achieve better trade-offs in vehicle designs, for example, between driving performance and fuel economy. An in-depth discussion is provided at the end of the course about the control and design of split hybrid electric vehicles.
